Rishabh Pant Can’t Stop Laughing While Completing Easy Run-Out Against Punjab Kings. After a mix-up between Arshdeep Singh and Vaibhav Arora, Rishabh Pant completed the simplest of run-outs.
The Delhi Capitals defeated the Punjab Kings by 9 wickets in Match 32 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, despite a Covid outbreak in their camp. DC delivered an all-around performance, led by the bowlers, who did half the job by limiting PBKS to 115 after skipper Rishabh Pant chose to bowl first. Punjab lost wickets early on but held on until the final ball of the innings, thanks largely to Arshdeep Singh.
Arshdeep, on the other hand, was involved in a hilarious incident on the PBKS’s final ball.
PBKS failed to collect anything else from the over after hitting Mustafizur Rahman for a boundary in the second ball.
Arshdeep attempted to steal a bye off the final delivery, but Vaibhav Arora turned him down, leaving the former with a “brain fade” look on his face as he gave up and did not attempt to return to the crease.

Pant, meanwhile, took the ball, charged towards the stump, and dislodged the bails while sheepishly grinning.
DC crossed the line with nine wickets and 57 balls remaining after chasing a target of 116.
Prithvi Shaw and David Warner pounced on the PBKS bowlers, scoring 81 runs in the powerplay.
Rahul Chahar did manage to get Shaw’s wicket in the next over, but it was only a consolation for them.
Warner finished the game with an unbeaten 60, while Sarfaraz Khan also finished with an unbeaten 12.
With the victory, DC moved up to sixth place in the standings. They will now face the Rajasthan Royals on Friday, April 22 at the Wankhede Stadium.
